Finishing up our trifecta of yummy Michelin starred delights for this visit to Japan, our last stop just before heading towards Narita Airport was non other than Les Créations de Narisawa. Or Narisawa for short. Helmed by Chef Yoshihiro Narisawa, (Yes, you’d have seen him if you watched Netflix’s Final Table), his 2-starred Michelin restaurant […]Read more "Japan 2020 – Tokyo Food-Otaku: Les Créations de Narisawa"
Moving on from our Michelin adventure in Niseko, we now find ourselves seated in Den. One of (if not the best) restaurant in Tokyo and listed at number 11 on the World’s 50 best restaurants and number 3 for Asia’s equivalent list for 2020 and awarded the best restaurant in Japan for 3 years running, […]Read more "Japan 2020 – Tokyo Food-Otaku: Den Tokyo"
Dining out in Japan will forever be filled with memorable experience. Be it standing under the train tracks in a smokey hole-in-the-wall Kushi-katsu diner with barely enough room to stand or heading out to a beautifully quaint Izakaya in a remote part of the city. Each one ingrained into the mind in their own unique […]Read more "Japan 2020 – Tokyo Food-Otaku: Of joys and disappointments. Yakitori Tsukada & Ginza Kyubey."
Have I ever told you how much I love going to Tokyo? I LOVE GOING TOKYO! Besides the obvious reasons (cars, cars, cars…), another aspect of travelling to Tokyo is the absolutely crazy amount of food available. When even just hitting up a local Matsuya for a quick bowl of Gyudon (i go for one […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: Of old acquaintances and new-found friends"
While it’s often fun to plan ahead and search, hunt or pick out wonderful places to find yummy grub before one actually steps into a new country, one of the joys of holiday travel is definitely having a good meal after stepping into a new or unfamiliar establishment. From my Winter vacation in Tokyo, here […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: Unplanned Pleasantries, Kajiya Bunzou, Luke’s Lobster Rolls & Goutran Cherrier"
After an entire morning worth of touring around the fantastic and lovely Ghibli Museum (well worth visiting if you can get hold of the tickets), we trekked through Inokashira park on our way to meet this holiday’s Meat of destiny, Matsusaka beef in Steak House Satou! Though the park was especially beautiful at this time […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: For the love of beef, Steak House Satou & Blacows"
I’d like to think, part of the charm of Tokyo is that because the city is such a vast metropolis, there are always interesting new places to discover, explore and taste! But sometimes, there are just some places which have charmed us so much that we make it a point to drop by whenever we […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: Familiar locales, Ivy’s Place, The Roastery And Bear Pond"
It was a day of Katsu as we headed to Tonkatsu Yachiyo in Tsukiji for breakfast, and Tonkatsu Maisen over in Omotesando for dinner. Two rather different places, both serving Katsu. Of course, part of this Katsu dining experience wasn’t exactly planned as we were really heading into Tsukiji early in the morning for the […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: Tonkatsu Yachiyo & Maisen"
In a place where good eats can be found pretty much anywhere, 4-days in Tokyo for a foodie is really nowhere near enough. Which is why we found ourselves narrowing down a small list of places we would like to visit once we set foot into this Metropolis. A word of advise? Google maps is […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: Of Ramen, Burgers And everything in between"
Admittedly, i had actually wanted to do a couple more write-ups on the more tasty bits of Tokyo back when i last visited in January, but somehow i have never got around to doing it. One of the reasons was probably because i was just too busy stuffing my face and didn’t get much photos […]Read more "Tokyo Food-Otaku: Tsukiji-Hunting"
